Night Cru
With a line-up that, man-for-man, bears an incredible resemblance to the team from "Midnight Cruise"...

They will bring their unique old-school accoustic guitar party vibe to your next function.
Sing, hum, and just generally groove along to songs you’ll know well (and others not-so-much). With vocals, a couple of guitars, a bass and a guy thrashing a breadboard: this low-fuss acoustic four-piece is as unrepentent as they are unplugged: so unhesitate and get in touch now!

We also have an full band setup available click here for details.

Night Cru were the perfect band to have at our wedding! So easy to deal with, and real crowd pleasers!! They were very professional and had almost all our guests on the dance floor at one point or another!! Such a fun night! I would totally recommend, we had so many comments on the band – thanks again guys! The music you provided will always be a memorable part of our Wedding Day. Robyn and Rick Ridder :)

Night Cru performed at the Ascot Park Hotel Christmas Dine and Dances. They had people on the floor dancing with their first song and kept them going all night long. These guys are really easy to work with, they read a crowd well. We have booked them again for 2017!

Booked Night Cru for our wedding reception. My new Wife and I thoroughly enjoyed their performance, and pretty much every one of our guests commented favourably. (Even found out that previous lineups of the band had played at the weddings of 2 couples present as well as knowing numerous other guests) Pricing was excellent value for money, and I would highly recommend Night Cru.

South Alive needed a band that could really deliver a strong performance to a community of all ages for the launch of the street upgrade in South Invercargill. We chose Night Cru and we have had awesome feedback from the huge crowd that listened, danced and thoroughly enjoyed the music generated by the band. Strong vocals, balanced with impressive guitar, drums and keyboard skills, the band kept the crowd involved and entertained. A great group to work with – no stress – a totally professional band with top class equipment and talent to match. Ask anyone who was there!! Awesome – thanks Night Cru.

As an events co-ordinator it’s imperative to have that go to act. Night Cru is that for us. When a clients gives their criteria for an act they are looking for, more often than not this group fits the brief. With a great catalogue of danceable favourites (old and new), a realistic pricing structure. Kerry and the team have never failed us at the Kelvin Hotel! We have a dedicated dine and dance with them every year, it always sells out and quite often the same groups come back time and again. Our staff always look forward to events Night Cru are involved in. We have music quite a lot in the hotel and our staff are quite honest when it comes to their review of musical acts! Kerry himself is a great joker who really comes alive in a responsive audience and the band never fail to ping off him. The rhythm section is tight and with a great mix of vocal abilities all bases are covered! Being a hotel, we have noise restrictions and these guys never get up in arms about being asked to turn down on the occasions it has happened. I thoroughly recommend Night Cru to anyone looking for a truly fantastic and versatile musical group. Also a thank you to “The Cruise” for the years you have given us at the Kelvin Hotel!


These guys rock. They’re professional, reliable and highly entertaining. We’d book them again in a heartbeat :)

Night Cru have played at the Hargest school ball for a number of years. They are a professional, talented group of musicians who obviously enjoy playing. They willingly work with us to get the right songs for each dance. Our school balls are a big success with a high percentage of students ballroom dancing thanks to the music from Night Cru
